This is one of my fun projects I did a while back. It was definitely one of the most involved project I’ve ever done due to requiring so many fields of knowledge to actually complete this. I built this based upon a design I found online. I apologize that I can’t find the original designer of the cabinet, but credit is due for giving me the basics. I altered the design a bit to make it smaller so it would fit inside my room and of course altered the dimensions to fit the TV properly. This is a modular arcade cabinet where you can interchange individual panels to fit the game, so I have a good bit of different panels behind the cabinet for various games. It uses RJ45 connections to make changing the panels a breeze. It supports up to 4 players and has the capability of installing a trackball, flight stick, steering wheel, whatever. Did I mention I love this design? lol. Everything is legit as I tried to own the original ROM’s of all the games loaded and as you can see, I also made it inter-operable with various consoles via an automatic switch. I have the N64, Dreamcast, SNES, Saturn, and Genesis with SegaCD. Here are a few more photos of the build. If you have any questions about it, I’ll be glad to answer. Thanks for looking.
